Thailand's first 'mobile phone lane'

Varsity gets Thailand's first 'mobile phone lane' for smartphone junkies



THAILAND'S first footpath "mobile phone lane" for pedestrians has been implemented at Bangkok's Kasetsart University (KU) to accommodate tardy students who are sick of bumping into smartphone users on their way to class.

The 500-metre footpath was divided into two lanes to separate phone users from non-users. The initiative, proposed by KU students and sponsored by Toyota Thailand, was implemented on a trial basis until November 15 in front of Central |Building No 1, which has a lot of foot traffic during rush hour. The results of the initiative will be assessed by the Performance Management Strategies team to compare the numbers from before and after the dual-lane footpath was implemented.

Must be the mobile phone industry behind that. People not using their mobile phones while walking can concentrate on where they walk, but people concentrating on their smartphones' display or on the conversation they are holding over their phones are more likely to bump into other mobile phone users and then drop their toys, gotta buy new ones.

They need a lane for idiot drivers here.  Oh wait, there already is one.  It's the entire road, emergency parking lanes, bike lanes, etc.  I say, save the paint.  No need to mark anything when the folks here don't care.   ;D
